"Cherry Bomb" - Performed Live by Cherie Currie, Kathy Valentine, and Others

Here's a great video of female rockers past and present: Cherie Currie, lead singer for The Runaways, singing the band's hit "Cherry Bomb" live in concert with a band including Kathy Valentine and Charlotte Caffey of the Go-Go's (Valentine to Currie's left; Caffey to Currie's right).

This performance was part of a concert in L.A. last week to benefit MusiCares.

Cherie Currie hasn't been doing much in terms of music these days, as far as I know. She's made appearances to promote "The Runaways" movie and her recently reissued memoir, "Neon Angel," but other than that has been pursuing her current work as a chainsaw wood-carving artist.

Kathy Valentine is now gearing up for what is billed as the Go-Go's farewell tour. She also plays with the all-female Texas band the BlueBonnets, and works as a producer with other female musicians, most notable the trio Adrian and the Sickness.
